  2. Just open iFLy setup.exe, follow the instruction and install the files into main directory of FSX
  3. We recommend to update the navigation database from http://www.navdata.at, we use the same database as pic767/pmdg737. We also recommend to update the SID/STAR database from http://PlanePath.com

System Requirements

This product is only compatible with FSX, so of course, FSX is required. For your computer, we recommend you have a P4 2.8 GHz machine, with a 256 Mb memory video card. System memory should be a minimum of 1G. HD should be a minimum of 250MB. Low-end on-board sound chips are NOT recommended. A plugin sound card, such as a Soundblaster Audigy, is recommended. 

FAQ

Q1. I have installed the FSUIPC. however, all displays in the cockpit doesn't show anything except on PFD says that I need to install FSUIPC with version number 4.1. Why?
A: If you already have FSUIPC version 4.1 or later, then this problem indicates that you are using unauthorized FSUIPC registration code. However, actually you don't need to use registrated copy of FSUIPC for iFly 747-400 (because iFly 747-400 can function normally with an unregistered copy of FSUIPC). The solution is to simply re-install the FSUIPC.

Q2. The sound volumn seems quite low after I entered in iFly 747-400 2D cockpit. How to fix this?
A: Select FS menu to "select aircraft", and select iFly 747-400 to load this aircraft again.   

Q3. With selected ILS Frequence, PDF/ND displays this ILS and iFly 747-400 is also in GS mode. But why it doesn't descend to intercept the GS? Strange that the aircraft just keeps the current flight level...
A: In some special cases, the GS station in FSX gives incorrect coordinates (due to FSX's own problem). You can select NAV RAD page in CDU, and insert any frequence to NAV 1, then insert "DELETE" to delete this frequence. By this way, it can force FS to refresh the GS's coordinates. Please note, it is not recommended to use this method in SLEW mode or in PAUSE state.

Q4. Why there is nothing shown on displays in VC mode?
A: It is possible that your default flying setting is to use VC mode. You need to first 2D cockpit and then switch to VC, so after the displays in VC mode should function normally.

I have no VC AF all, the 2D cockpit works fine but when you switch to the VC all you can see is the scenery ahead. Can anyone help please?

DeborahWed, 23 Jul 2014 20:56:40 GMT

Wow, several models, detailed 350 plus page manual, claims of realism, tons of eye candy.

Too bad the aircraft doesn't work.

Undocumented procedure to make the VC and 2D panel displays and gauges to work: View Instruments, DUMMP, then after everything loads switch views. Panel displays and gauges should work now, until you change aircraft of exit FSX.

REQUIRES PAID VERSION OF FSUIPC for many functions to work as described in the manual, and to program the FMC.

FMC uses ONLY seriously outdated AIRACS BGL files (they were 10 years outdated when this aircraft was released). This makes the aircraft unusable in multiplayer flights using VATSIM and IVAO, and even in the now defunct Gamespy. If you have updated these files in FSX at all, you will need to uninstall FSX, then reinstall without ANY updates, to create the two flightplans so they work together.

Flight planning requires both FSX Flight Planner AND the FMC be programmed manually, they don't talk to each other, and the aircraft will either stall, refuse to climb, or dive for the ground if you don't.

I've been using MSFS since the original version (1980's). Never once have I come across a "freeware" aircraft so ridiculous. My guess is it was intended to be a demo for an internally proposed project, one that flopped badly. Only serious simmers pay for aircraft, and then we only buy them from serious developers.

My advice? Don't bother with this one, it isn't worth it.

It works great but 3 problems I've came across 1.guages don't work the vc is textureless and grey

2.it wont take off (need Very long runway)

3 sometimes it go's nose down when trying to lane

Please fix

StephenThu, 05 Jun 2014 16:16:46 GMT

Can this 747-400 be flown without having to use the FMC like the FSX default 747-400 using the GPS, NAV and Auto Pilot.

Jack OpieThu, 27 Mar 2014 01:48:02 GMT

Where and what Navdata do I use to set up theFMC

Thanks Jack

When I select F9, I have no VC. All I see is Runway.

ScreamerThu, 16 May 2013 08:08:59 GMT

IMHO this is the top add on for FSX. It set's the standard for freeware add ons for FSX. Just make sure you run FSX in administrator mode to use the FMC. It's auto land capability is the best there is. I can land this plane in fully auopilot in zero visibility, just like a real Cat III C landing. That is simulated very well with this model.

Pro MemberpoohsdaddySat, 27 Oct 2007 11:03:44 GMT
guages ect didn't work, put MS 747 dash in it works, then aircraft sinks with stick all the way back. Every aircraft in this site has problems with something.
